Reviewed from notes. Thanks to dmp274 for sharing this one with me.

I enojoyed this beer right off the bat just from the smells- lots of floral hops, vanilla, and sweet bread. Great appearance - dark and jet black but surprisingly wasn't viscous at all, and a delicate bubbly head which dissipated quickly. The taste was equally complex: hints of citrusy sweetness, but bitterness akin to a grapefruit, with lots of roasted malt. Creamy mouthfeel, medium in weight. It finished with a boozy bitterness that didn't linger. Definitely drinkable.

Overall, a well-balanced ale with lots of interesting subtleties that indulged all of the senses. I will definitely be looking for this one again.
